ISBN Database of 18.4 Million Books (Title, Author, 8.8 Million Cover Images)

Database Description:

With 18.39 million unique ISBN and books and over 8.8 million images of the book covers and authors, this ambitious database (5th edition) endeavors to be the most authoritative books database in the world. In time, it would probably grow bigger than that of Google's or Amazon's. We will eventually replace this with accounted web API access on monthly subscriptions, therefore if you want a complete database at your full disposal, now is the time.

This database contains 18,392,601 unique ISBN-13 numbers thus unique books, with 23 data fields for each of them. 96.6% records have non-empty author / authors field. There are NO duplicate books in this database. Other than the added number of records and data fields, better than the previous version, this database has now an authors table containing 3,272 authors and 3,272 author photos in JPEG. More will be identified and added in upcoming versions that you can download for free as per our lifetime update policy.

Only the first million books are associated with the subjects tables. The other books have a subjects field that solitarily describes the subjects, disciplines or genres of each of them. This books ISBN database also comes with 8,880,949 unique book cover images (8.8 million JPEG files, 229 GB). All customers who paid $589.95 or more for this database will be able to download the images package.

Each book record consists of book title, first author, author biography, all authors, ISBN-13 (13-digits ISBN), ISBN-10 (10-digits ISBN), price, physical format (hardcover, paperback, etc.), publisher, publishing date, edition, subjects, lexile literacy scale, number of pages, dimensions, overview, excerpt, synopsis, TOC (table of contents) and editorial reviews. More information about each book can be acquired by querying Amazon Product Advertising API or Google Books API by the ISBN numbers from this books database.

Due to increasing download volume per customer, soon we may end the lifetime update policy for new customers. Take the opportunity now, while it still lasts, otherwise you will need to pay for new updates.
